I 1st met Joe at the Orenco Farmer's Market. We would go every week and see Joe making funky balloons for all the kids there. My little girl was about to turn 3 and she decided she wanted no one to perform at her birthday but Joe. He did not disappoint. She was simply in awe of him from the balloons to the music to the juggling (and the fire juggling!). Everyone had a great time so it was no surprise that for her 5th birthday this year she asked if she could see Mr Joe. Again he came and treated her to an extra special birthday. We see Joe perform all over the city and each time brings a sense of awe and wonder to my little girl (and now that he is getting old enough to participate my son as well). His energy, creativity and his kindness are always there for all to partake in and I can't think of any better way to spend an event than having Joe at the center of it. Thanks so much Joe for all that you've done!
